The Chicago City Council has approved the mixed-use development at 914 W 63rd Street in Englewood. Located on the northeast corner of the intersection with S Halsted Parkway, the proposal dubbed ‘Englewood Thrive’ will be replacing a large vacant lot just west of Englewood Connect which broke ground recently. Developer DL3 Realty is working with the local office of Perkins & Will on the design of the multi-phase project which hopes to foster growth and provide new housing in the changing area.
As construction continues to makes rapid gains, full permits have now been issued for a 19-story mixed-use building at 210 N Aberdeen Street in Fulton Market. LG Development Group has planned to construct a 214-foot-tall structure that will sit on an L-shaped site. The building will include 10,700 square feet of retail space and 363 apartment units. The scope and design have changed slightly prior to construction, having reduced the total units from 414 residences and the height from 239 feet.
Initial construction permits have been issued for the mixed-use development at 5159 N Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Square. Located on the southeastern corner with W Foster Avenue, the new structure will replace a currently vacant lot that up until recently held multiple one-story commercial buildings which were home to local stalwart Jimmy’s Pizza Cafe. Developer Grand Properties Acquisitions LLC is working with Chicago-based Hanna Architects, who designed a very similar proposal just up the street at 5214 N Lincoln Avenue.
With much of the foundation work now in place, steel beams have been spotted at 812 W Adams Street in West Loop, the site of a new seven-story mixed-use development by Luxe Suites Chicago. The project will include 80 for-rent apartments and 4,200 square feet of retail, which will replace three low-rise buildings on the southernmost part of the block.
With cladding not far behind, structural work has now topped out for 1044 W Van Buren Street, an 18-story mixed-use high rise along the southern edge of West Loop. Previously a two-story masonry building, the site is being developed by Tandem, whose plans call for a total of 196 for-rent apartments atop a ground-level retail component.
